    This is a video of the Advanced Tactics Black Knight Transformer (despite the fact it's beige and neither the Autobots or Decepticons want it on their side) taking its maiden voyage. Let's hope it goes better than the Titanic's. This is the official video of the Advanced Tact... / Continue →

    This is the US military's new Black Knight Transformer. That's a pretty intimidating name for what appears to be a flying shipping crate. Hell, it's not even black. They should have called it the Tan Coptervan. The helicopter rotors do fold in so it's more streamlined when ... / Continue →

    This is a video of helicopter pilot Dan Clark showing just how fast he can pick up felled Christmas trees and throw them in the back of a truck in Oregon. He's pretty quick. I'm not sure how I'd feel about being the guy that has to hook up the next tree to Dan's cable. Also,... / Continue →

    This is the ceiling fan modded into a much sweeter HELICOPTER ceiling fan by Redditor ScumbagJanitorGuy for his son. It just goes to show, you can't always judge a book by their username. Scumbag later plans on painting the ceiling to look like the sky. Awesome! The only th... / Continue →

    This is the $47 R/C TARDIS helicopter that's being released in July. You should buy one, that way you can fly it around the living room while you're watching Dr. Who for a truly INTERACTIVE experience. Or chase your cat around with it. I don't f***ing know, you people weird... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy flying a giant R/C plane when it clips a little helicopter, loses a wing, and crashes into a hundred billion pieces (approximately). I was really hoping the plane operator was going to pick a fist fight with the copter pilot afterwards, but no such ... / Continue →

    Hexapod robots: they're no good. Qaudrocopters: they're no good. Put them together and what do you get? 40-times the no good (robots breed exponentially -- think rabbits, but nothing you'd ever want to see a magician pull out of a hat). This is the Hexapod Quadrocopter (whi... / Continue →

    This is a helicopter inspired hair sculpture created by New York City artist Olaf Breuning. It's awesome, but I think the little thing on her nose is a little over the top. Like, I would have still known it was a helicopter without that. The heart earrings were a solid addit... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video contains lots of very strong language and should only be watched at full volume with a middle finger pointed at the entrance to your cubicle the entire time it's playing. This is a video of a helicopter flight instructor and student flying around when they spot an ... / Continue →

    Hey, guy in the front -- I like your shoes. This is a video of an entirely too large pedal-powered helicopter taking off at the University of Maryland (go turtles!). The pedalcopter recently set a record for the longest human-powered helicopter flight with a whopping 50-secon... / Continue →

    Because what better way to start a Monday than with some weird/depressing news, Dutch artist Bart Jansen had his cat Orville (after the Wright brother) taxidermied and turned into a flying quadrocopter after it was hit by a car. You know, because that's how you show respect fo... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a helicopter crashing while filming a segment for the Korean version of Top Gear (aka The Deadliest Gear). Thankfully, there were no serious injuries. *breathes a big sigh of relief, accidentally huffs a dog fart* CHLOOOOOOEEEE!!!!!1 During a filmin... / Continue →

    Oh man, the fear we could strike in my neighborhood with this thing. In other hovering news, this is an immaculately conceived restored 1965 Marine Corps Huey gunship for sale on eBay. You and I are going to buy it together and take turns going on neighborhood patrol. Oooooo... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to be chopped to pieces atop of an exercise ball? Join my ninja yoga class. Ooooooooor strap yourself to this terrifying 16-blade multicopter. One slip and you're fertilizer. The German e-volo multicopter is the first manned electric multicopter to take flight a... / Continue →

    We last saw the Japanese Defense Ministry's spherical flying drone trying to spy on a lady in her apartment, and now its back being demonstrated in front of a roomful of reporters. COME ON BRO, NO LOOPTY-LOOPS?! The video below shows the drone doing everything it was designed... / Continue →

    "Scientists" (read: terrorists) at the Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) have attached a Linux box to a quadrocopter drone and taught it to locate Wi-Fi networks and attack them from the air. Oh -- plus they named it SkyNET. What the shit... Whilst internet-only attacks ... / Continue →

    Casey Putsch built a Batmobile powered by a turbine engine from a naval helicopter (allegedly the only tubine-powered Batmobile to date so I don't know what this is) because he's a firm believer IN GOING BIG OR NOT GOING AT ALL. Hey, I'm with you bro. *finishing off second 20... / Continue →

    So you know how a SEAL team raided Bin Laden's hideout and killed him? I know, I just heard about it too. Also, that there was a specially trained dog on the raid team. Yes, seriously. Anyway, I would have taken him alive. Crippled as a one-legged spider, but alive. But e... / Continue →

    Modder el8id, best known for some wicked-ass spirit fingers, jammed a headset into an old helicopter pilot's helmet. That way, when you're playing Call of Duty and getting your ass handed to you, instead of imagining it's a bunch of pimply 13-year olds, you can imagine it's ju... / Continue →

    This is a video of an R/C tri-copter shooting Roman candles at hydrogen-filled balloons in the style of a video game. Obviously, I'm pissed I didn't have this kind of setup when I was a kid. And not just because the closest I ever came to a missile-laden R/C helicopter was a ... / Continue →
